When the polemics of batteries of iPhones reached their peak, Apple was forced to take a more drastic approach and reduced the prices for replacing the batteries in the devices (from R $ 449 to R $ 149). At the time, we informed that such price would last until December 2018 and that, in 2019, the values ??would return to normal. Now we are reaching the end of the year and Apple decided to share more information about the values ??that will be practiced from next year.
According to a support page, until December 31, 2018, the out-of-warranty battery service fee will remain at R $ 149 for models of iPhones SE, 6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus , 8, 8 Plus and X. Starting in 2019, prices will look like this:
|iPhones SE, 6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus||R $ 329|
|iPhones X, Xs, Xs Max and Xr||R $ 449|
The news is bad and good at the same time. Bad because the price really goes up, so anyone who is facing a problem with the battery and has an iPhone 6 or later needs to run to take advantage of the reduced values. The good part is that, even with the price hike starting in January 2019, most exchanges cost R $ 329 (a reduction of R $ 120 compared to the R $ 449 charged until the controversy starts).
In the United States, the current value of $ 29 goes up to:
|iPhones SE, 6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus||$ 49|
|iPhones X, Xs, Xs Max and Xr||$ 69|
|Other eligible, old iPhones||$ 79|
As before the controversy the exchange in the USA cost US $ 79, the readjustment there also ends up being beneficial for customers.
